    How wonderful to be able to eat food from your very own yard.

    Broccoli in lasagna sounds good; I’ll have to try it sometime.

    Wow, your menu always looks and sounds good but this week is torture. The lasagna looks especially good. I can’t imagine how good cooking it your earthern oven made it.

  3. Susan says:

    Hi again,

    For the broccoli lasagna do you need to cook the broccoli first, or can you add it raw?

  4. Stephanie Griffith says:

    Yum! I agree with everyone else, that lasagne looks especially delicious.

  5. Ginny says:

    The food looks absolutely luscious! And, yes, I must agree with everyone: the lasagana looks TOO good. You will have to post a recipe. 😀

    In Christ,

    Anais,

    I see that you guys love pasta! Growing up in the US, I always made lasagna with lots of cheese filling, but here in Montreal, the way I eat it at my fav restaurant is layers of lasagna noodles, thin layers of sauce, and layers of sauteed veggies. That usually means zucchini, peppers, yellow squash, onions, and maybe some spinach as well. They layer all that with only a sprinkling of mozz. cheese on top of each veggie layer. OH yes, and the top layer has thinly sliced tomatoes and another sprinkling of cheese on top of that.

    I know that you guys are trying to be self sufficient, so I thought I would pass along a tried and true idea for a mostly vegetable lasagna.
